SHOPPING: Cowards: LP

Kickass peppy punk with nasally singing and a nice rough edge to it all. A less polished version of the Peechees in some—not a bad thing—really driving pop punk with some math angles in there, which is great. You can pogo and feel like the band understands your depression from work and love, yet feel aggro enough that you are sweating it all out when emo is just not doing it for you. I liked a Shopping split 7” and thrilled that the whole album lives up to that. Recommended. LP has a CD with two extra songs. This record should solve all those annoying drives home from work.
